Social Media and Medicine: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Patients and healthcare providers seek and share information regarding various medical topics, both for themselves or for others, via social media outlets like never before. The prevalence of social media in medicine is growing exponentially and presents opportunities and challenges to healthcare professionals and institutions.

Please join us on December 14, 2017 as we address some of the risks, benefits and precautions of the use of social media in medicine.
